NFL picks against the spread: Eagles set for the underdog win

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

We give you our against the spread Monday NIght Football pick

Monday Night Football has arrived and Michael Vick's Philadelphia Eagles take on Drew Brees' New Orleans Saints in New Orleans. Both need a win in the worst way. The Saints are three-point favorites, which is standard for home teams.

Which way do we go?

This is where the New Orleans defense fails them. Yes, they usually play these prime time games very well when at home, but the team still has Drew Brees as their quarterback.

Philadelphia still has too much talent on the offensive side of the ball. They have struggled mightily. Turnovers have been the issue. However, Michael Vick has been more careful with the ball -- in his throws at least. Against the Saints' defense, he will be able to shine like he hasn't all season this year.

Our pick? In this Monday night matchup, we are taking the points. New Orleans just struggles too much, and the Eagles ave too much talent to not take advantage of that. Pick, Eagles, +3 (but I think they win straight up)
